Another gigantic phone, you say? Yes indeed - Pantech just announced the 5.9" Vega No. 6 for its home market of South Korea, though there's no reason in particular to expect that's where this mega-phone will stay.

The No. 6 is the largest 1080p display phone announced to date, which is an accomplishment... I guess. A quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro (can we just start calling it 'SS4P' or something?) powers the No. 6's screen of many pixels, and a 3150mAh battery keeps the lithium ions flowing freely. They've stuffed a 13MP camera in there, too, because "bigger numbers" is basically this phone's calling card. And 'Full HD LTE' - yes, that actually appears in the press release.

While it may not match the diagonal dimension of Huawei's Ascend Mate, the No. 6 is packing an arsenal of internal specifications that will leave its Chinese competitor with a serious case of hardware horsepower envy. I am so sorry for that sentence.

Pricing and release information were not announced, but expect the No. 6 to start appearing in cargo shorts later this year.
